Super Bowl Memories

The Super Bowl is one of the best football games of the year. It’s a game everyone looks forward to and cherishes the night of. Whether for the football, the commercials, the halftime show or even all of it. The game is a spectacle.

One of the fondest Super Bowl memories I have is from Super Bowl 43 which happened nine years ago on this day when the Pittsburgh Steelers won their sixth Super Bowl with a win over the Arizona Cardinals.

I can vividly remember the Cardinals taking the lead late on the back of Larry Fitzgerald. I then remember Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense driving down the field.

Super Bowl matchups to watch

It’s Super Bowl week! Time to grab your wings and beer and get prepared for one of the biggest parties of the year.

But enough about the parties, we’re here to read about the game!

A football game is often compared to a game of chess as coaches try to strategically out-maneuver their opponent. Matchups are a big part of that.

I will highlight a few key matchups to keep your eye on Sunday as the New England Patriots attempt to win back-to-back Super Bowls and the Philadelphia Eagles attempt to win their first.

When the Eagles have the ball you should key on:

Zach Ertz vs. Patrick Chung

Ertz had an impressive year for the Eagles catching 74 passes for 824 yards and eight touchdowns. He’s caught 11 of 13 targets for 125 yards in the playoffs. The Patriots defense has been pretty good against the tight end, ranking 11th in the NFL allowing about 4.5 catches for 44 yards.

Quarterback Nick Foles and Ertz were a force early in the NFC title game for the Eagles, and they’ll need to get cooking early for the Eagles to have a chance.

Dear Mr. Brady

Dear Tom Brady,

Tom. Thomas. Mr. Brady. Eventually, some will come to call you, the G.O.A.T. It’s no secret that you are quite possibly the greatest football player to ever play the quarterback position. You will go down as a legend in this game, whether it is merited or not, all of which is up for debate. Your career has been filled with wins, losses, accolades, MVP’s and more importantly, championships. So much so, that you’ve surpassed and supplanted the previous great, Joe Montana. There is no doubt that you’ve accomplished so much in this game of football. Like I stated earlier, all of that is and will be up for debate. But, that is not why I am writing you this letter. In fact, I personally admire everything that you have come to accomplish in your football career.

Historic week for McMahon and WWE

The last seven days for Vince McMahon and WWE has been nothing short of phenomenal. From the 25th Anniversary of Raw and XFL announcement to an incredible pair of night’s with NXT and the Royal Rumble in Philadelphia to even the lows of Enzo Amore’s rape allegations. It’s been a historic week for McMahon and the WWE.

Let’s start off with a review of one of my favorite events of the year, the Royal Rumble.

The WWE title match kicked off the main card with AJ Styles defending in a handicapped match against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. The three did a great job telling the story of Styles’ uphill battle throughout.

The finish set the stage for this story to continue in some fashion after AJ Styles pinned Kevin Owens despite Sami Zayn being the legal man.
